“Daryl and Alicia have a lovely home. It was clean and comfortable and in new condition. The decor is current and the location ideal. The beauty of the location is that it’s close to Silverstar resort so for the mountain biking or skiing enthusiast your steps away, We had a lovey time exploring the city and prefer it to other locations in the Okanagan. For those of you looking for a wonderful holiday get away, I highly recommend. Thank you Daryl and Alicia for being such welcoming hosts. ”

Where is it?
A short walk takes you to tennis courts and a new playground for kids. We'll leave our hiking guide book out to explore easy outings in the neighborhood (Grey Canal Trail or BX Falls) or challenge yourself on any of the 40 longer hikes in the region.
From December to March head 15 minutes east to Silver Star Mountain Resort, where you can ski/snowboard for as little as a $30 Cnd./gondala lift ticket (3:30 - 8:30pm). Even March skiing is great that high in the mountains - our neighborhood is often 5-10 degrees warmer than the resort.
There's golfing from February to October in the sunny Okanagan, ranging from $40 to $160 (Cnd.). In the summer Silver Star boasts some of the best downhill mountain biking in the world. This is also wine country, so tour 'till your heart's content, or go trail riding on horseback.
Vernon has great restaurants to suit any taste, big-box stores to get ample supplies and plenty of boutiques for your interests. We're 30 minutes north of Kelowna International Airport (YLW), 5 hours east of Vancouver and 5 hours west of world-famous Banff National Park. The area has old mining/ghost towns you might dare to poke through, and a couple hours north is the famed 'Last Spike' location of Canada's cross-country railroad.
